Alaska Blog Series - Why Cruise Alaska?




The beauty that is Alaska is breathtaking and no amount of words can describe it accurately.  It is something you need to experience and see in person. When they say it is the last frontier, that statement couldn’t be truer.





I’ve sailed to Alaska three times over many years and I still want to go back again. There is always something else that I want to see or do that I didn’t get to on my last trip. On two of those sailings, I went in the beginning of June and both were different in what we saw and experienced. On one, the warmer weather had just moved in, so waterfalls were abundant in every port of call.


 You may wonder if bringing children on this cruise is worthwhile. I can say without a shadow of a doubt it is.There are many educational opportunities that children won’t even realize because they’re having such fun and enjoying the majesty of the mountains, sites and wildlife. It’s an education not sitting behind a desk in a room, but outside experiencing it first-hand.

Some cruise lines will have experts they may bring on board for the day or guest lecturers that sail with you doing a serious of lectures. Our sailing on Celebrity Cruise Line had a guest lecturer who did a series on the different wildlife you’d see on your trip.  He was incredible and had interesting stories of his trips over the years working for National Geographic.

I also want to note that when I was taking photos at sundown when there was no sun; those photos would come out with a blue hue.  They are unusual, almost looking like a fake photo, but they are unique.
If you haven’t been to Alaska, I would recommend planning a trip there, you’ll be glad you did.

Ears the News: September 27, 2019 Edition

The 6 mile long Disney Skyliner opens at the end of the month in Walt Disney World, and we are now starting to hear confirmation of some of the operational details.

As expected, lightning will be addressed by the Skyliner system closing when lightning is forecast. The system does feature lightning protection, but Disney will obviously be keeping guests out of the sky during bad weather. Bus service will be available during weather closure of the Skyliner.


Disney Skyliner is able to carry 10 guests per cabin, and guests may also travel with strollers, wheelchairs and service animals.

There are five stations in total covering the 3 lines - at Caribbean Beach, Pop Century/Art of Animation, Disney Riviera Resort, Disney's Hollywood Studios and Epcot International Gateway. Caribbean Beach is the main gateway and you will transfer there to each destination.

Although Disney Riviera Resort doesn…

Disney Villains After Hours Event

This summer, the Kingdom Konsultant Agents took on a full day of training followed by a late night Magic Kingdom adventure at the Disney Villains After Hours Event.  The night promised low crowds, special effects on attractions, specialty food items available for purchase, a unique stage show and PhotoPass opportunities, and Maleficent at night. In addition, there were complimentary soda, bottled water, popcorn and ice cream novelties with our event admission! We couldn't wait to see what we could accomplish! Pro tip: you won't be able to accomplish it all in one night, there is just too much to see and do!

Walking in to Main Street was a little hectic with the day guests leaving and the party guests arriving.  We almost missed the guide map but managed to double back to grab some so that we could all make a plan! You notice right away a different feel to the park with little hints of the villains all around.



The two main attractions with overlays were Pirates of the Caribbean…
